    Thank you
    Vintage 90, you are saying if there is another strong network near it could be causing the problem?
    I ask because while my iPad is saying it's connected ( check mark beside the network) it also has the " searching for network" and spinning icon.
    On my desktop and phone I can see there are several networks at my home that are pretty strong. They are neighbors networks and are secure and I have turned my guest network off since it was so strong. Maybe they are causing the iPad to get confused? I can't do anything about it while out and about but if the local places have more than 1 network going?
    Is there a way to force the iPad to use G instead of N?

    I got the same reaction on an Android forum when they saw the Ipad shortcuts :D

    Wifi Settings


    Try this: Go to settings, wifi, and look for the box marked "Ask to join other networks" Turning this off should stop your ipad showing all the other wifi connections. If you are out and about you will have to re-enable it to use other wifi hotspots

    :)

    I believe there are many threads on the IPF, so I will not start a new one. As many IPad users I have problems as well. Whenever I do not use the Internet on the Ipad for a few minutes it disconnects. I changed my router (for other reasons) and the problem disappeared for a while. I removed the cover, with magnet for the sleep function, but this did not help either. I changed the channels in my router, used n connection only on the router, changed security, changed band from 40 to 20 Mhz, etc. etc. Nothing worked. I am still looking, but found an article, which could be interesting for some of your.

    iOS 4.1 - 4.3.3 Allows DHCP Lease to Expire, Keeps Using IP Address

    Workaround for "iOS 4.1 - 4.3.3 Allows DHCP Lease to Expire, Keeps Using IP Address" Bug

    I have done the suggestions in the workaround and will see if there are improvements when I come home. Please let me know your findings if you try this as well.

    Regards,
